During high-volume times, guests will be added to a waitlist through the Waitlist App (Grand Rapids or Detroit). In addition, all staff must wear masks while on the floor or kitchen. Guests will also be required to wear masks unless seated at their assigned tables.

The taprooms will offer an amended menu and taplist for table service only. They will accept to-go orders via phone and through a new online ordering platform; curbside to-go will also remain in place for the foreseeable future. Live entertainment and special events programs in Grand Rapids and Detroit are currently on hold.

Founders Brewing will also reopen the Company Store in Grand Rapids with limited capacity. To adhere to social distancing, capacity will be limited to 6 shoppers at a time. Members of the public, who are exclusively interested in visiting the Company Store, may enter through the Company Store’s front entrance on the corner of Grandville and Williams. Taproom guests are asked to use the dedicated taproom entrance.
